Football at the 1958 Asian Games was held in Tokyo, South Japan from 24 May to 1 June 1958. In the tournament, there were 14 teams that entered the competition with the format being switched to a knockout format that had been popular at the Olympics. This would be the only time that the format would be used as it would go back to the group format in 1962.

In the gold medal match, it was Indonesia who would take out the gold medal as they defeated South Vietnam 2-0 in the final.
